reserve's latest snapshot of the u.s. economy isn't picture perfect, but it is positive. today's beige book report showed signs of solid overall economic growth. each of the fed's 12 districts showed either "moderate" or "modest" growth, steady or expanding real estate activity, and some growth in consumer spending from december through the first week of january. but the fed noted job market conditions didn't change much. one reason companies are cautious about hiring, is they are worried about fiscal uncertainty in the u.s. and that uncertainty is growing as some republicans in washington argue for a narrow definition of what it means for the government to default. skipping payments on government bonds would be a default they say. but skipping payments for other government services wouldn't be. this debate could have real consequences, as darren gersh explains. >> reporter: next month, the u.s. government will owe $38 billion in interest payments on the debt it's sold to investors here and overseas. but the u.s. government will take in about $210 billion in tax revenues in february. a voca
